Mariella Lehner

Mariella Lehner 1992 * Lower Austria is a visual artist whose practice includes drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture.
The underlying theme of her work revolves around the relationship between man and his environment, which manifests itself in commentaries on themes such as feminism, environmentalism or international conflict/solidarity.
Through an uncanny yet dreamy imagery and titles that allude to the often political origins of the works, the viewer is invited to explore and question the complexity of today's social climate and the contradictions in their own attitudes towards the issues depicted.

In addition to participating in various national and international group exhibitions, her works have been exhibited in Austrian institutions such as the Künstlerhaus Bregenz, the Volkskundemuseum Wien, the Wien Museum, the Stadtmuseum St. Pölten, and the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.

Mariella Lehner deals in her drawings and paintings mostly with socio-political themes. She uses various techniques and materials such as etching, monotype, airbrush or wall painting. Picture supports made of plaster often give the works an object-like character.
